Samsung announced costs for the Gear 2 and Gear Fit in Taiwan and it appears the company is trying to hold prices up at the same level as the original Galaxy Gear. That may work for a little while; Android Wear watches are coming.
The wearables race is on and Samsung is trying to pull ahead before Google releases tools for Android developers. Samsung’s Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo run on Tizen and now have an SDK of their own, along with 100 app partners.
Want an even closer look at the upcoming Galaxy S5 smartphone and Gear wearables? Samsung posted detailed hands-on videos of each device, highlighting some new features that haven’t received much attention yet.
Samsung is overhauling the Gear line just six months after launching its first smart watch, trading out the Android OS for Tizen. And instead of one new Gear watch, we’re getting two.
